What To Expect
First, you’ll meet your guide near the Vatican City, and then avoid the entrance queues at the Vatican Museums, using your pre-booked tickets. If needed, you can deposit any luggage or belongings in the Vatican cloakroom.
As your tour begins, children will play games to identify important Vatican artwork. You will see wonderful Greek and Roman sculptures as well as the sarcophagi of Empress Helena and Constantina, the mother and daughter of Constantine the Great.
Then, the tour heads through the Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries, Sobieski Hall, and the breathtaking Raphael's Rooms.
Next is the Sistine Chapel, the venue for papal elections and one of the most popular attractions in Italy. As you view Michelangelo's vast fresco, “The Last Judgment,” you’ll hear stories from the Bible, including the creation of Adam.
Your tour will end in Saint Peter's Square next to the taxi and bus station.
Your expert local guide for children and families will ensure your tour is customized for your family, making it unique to you and your interests. Children will be engaged throughout the tour, creating memories that will last a lifetime
READ CAREFULLY: Because of the growing popularity of the current pope Francis and his intense activity in organising mass events in the Vatican some areas might get closed last minute without previous notice. This has already happened this year and can happen again during you Vatican tour: the Sistine chapel and/or the Basilica of Saint Peter might not be accessible. In case of such events our tour guide will provide you with a valuable alternative focusing the tour inside the Vatican museums.
A dress code is required to enter places of worship and selected museums. No shorts or sleeveless tops allowed. Knees and shoulders MUST be covered for both men and women. You may risk refused entry if you fail to comply with these dress requirements
